We maybe had a little too much fun in the test kitchen with takes on corned beef, cabbage, and other St. Patrick's Day eats ... but no regrets. So even though these may not be the most authentic Irish recipes, they're still delicious—luckily.


  1. Corned Beef and Sauerkraut-Fritter Reuben Sandwiches

    We may have just invented the best new sandwich layer—a fritter patty made with sauerkraut and hash browns. Try it on this diner-style reuben.

  2. Nutty Leprechauns

    These nutty little characters are always the life of the party.

  3. Braised Cabbage with Bacon and Apple

    This cruciferous veggie is a common ingredient in Irish homes, and it just so happens to go great with bacon. Even better, it's a quick 30-minute recipe.

  4. Bacon-Wrapped Taters and Sprouts

    We promise not all of these recipes have bacon (disappointing, we know), but it's a must in these sweet and savory sprouts.

  5. Pretzel Shamrocks

    Cute, right? Who doesn't love an easy salty-sweet shamrock-shaped treat?

  6. Reuben Pinwheels

    If there's gonna be green beer at the party, there should also be lots of tasty snacks.

  7. Lucky Popcorn

    The secret to making an amazing snack mix is to mix in a cereal that packs in your favorite flavors. We used mint-chocolate Drumstick cereal, but any cereal should do the trick.
